Summary

It was 1921 when Lord Peter Wimsey first encountered the Attenbury Emeralds. The recovery of the gems in Lord Attenbury's dazzling heirloom collection made headlines -- and launched a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his career as a detective. Thirty years later, a happily married Lord Peter has just shared the secrets of that mystery with his wife, the detective novelist Harriet Vane. Suddenly, the new Lord Attenbury -- grandson of Lord Peter's first client -- seeks his help to establish ownership of the emeralds. Harriet and Peter contemplate the changes that war has wrought on English society -- and Peter, who has enjoyed the carefree life of the younger son, faces the unwanted prospect of ending up the Duke of Denver after all. Jill Paton Walsh brings us a masterful new chapter in the annals of one of the greatest detectives of all time.
